Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)
About Doug Hanna
Jan and I have three adult sons and were both fortunate to have parents who loved holidaying at the beach. We always had a two-week summer holiday at a beach somewhere, whether it be in a family tent on one of my Dad’s mates' sections, later in a caravan, or in my grandparents bach at Lang's Beach or my other grandparents home at Paihia. When I was about 15 my parents bought a bach at Oakura Bay and we spent many happy summers holidaying and boating there. When my parents relocated from Northland to a farm in the King Country and sold their Oakura bach we carried on holidaying here in the camping ground at Pirutahi Bay, just over the hill from Oakura. Eventually we bought our own beach house at Oakura and have holidayed there regularly since 1999.
Doug Hanna purchased this House in 1999
Why Doug Hanna chose Oakura
It is right on the beach and gets all day sun being one of the last baches to loose the sun in the evening. We did a major rennovation and modernisation after purchasing it to give an indoor - outdoor flow and to make it suitable for accommodating two families together at the same time.
What makes this House unique
8 x Kayaks, 1 x stand up paddle board, unlimited wifi, 42" flatscreen TV, good quality stereo for your use plus 4 bedrooms to accommodate two families together.

We have had a fantastic weekend in this beautiful bay .The batch is everything they say it is . We will be back .
Great family bach...
Has everything you need, great location, only issue was the shower has very low pressure....
Like all beach properties in the region all of our water supply comes from our tanks which collect rain water from the roof. We're currently in drought conditions (almost no rain for 2.5 months) and the limited water supply needs to be conserved. During these conditions we put a water restricter on the shower outlet to reduce the flow from the full 60psi pressure to prevent earnest teenagers from wasting lots of the limited water. We've done so since 2004 and this is the first time anyone's mentioned it as an issue for them.
Our second trip to Oakura Bay. What a gorgeous spot! Great beachside batch with everything you could need for a fun holiday by the sea.
What a stunning place! Beautiful location right on the beachfront...
What a stunning place! Beautiful location right on the beachfront. The house has everything you could possibly need. We really appreciated having access to the kayaks and paddleboard. Our week was an absolute treat, and we hope to be able to return in the future.
Delightful comfy house and amazing location just a few steps from the beach.
Delightful comfy house and amazing location just a few steps from the beach. Just loved sitting out on the deck in the mornings chatting to the friendly locals and the fish & chips in the local store are to die for!
Would happily rent again in the future.
Great kitchen, loads of plates, cutlery, sharp knives, chopping boards and all the essential's needed.
Two fridges also appreciated.
Partly sheltered from the Pacific by numerous islands this white sandy horse shoe shaped bay has small gentle waves making it a playground for all ages.
